Putao Vacation Packages
Staying in only one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever provide you with a limited view into the broader cultural and natural fabric of a region. So be sure to set aside enough time to tour Burma/Myanmar's other attractions.
If you ask residents what they recommend seeing around Putao, you'll most likely be directed to Burma/Myanmar's open-air markets. Visit Burma/Myanmar's craft workshops, art galleries and history museums. These are great destinations to spend time, especially when the weather is unpleasant.
The wider region offer some fun outdoor options for those who love water. Rafting and scuba diving are some of the popular water-based activities here.
Burma/Myanmar cuisine possesses its own unique characteristics and flavors, so don't miss the opportunity to try several of the local dishes. Ngapi (fermented seafood) and a thoke (salads) are some of the key ingredients. Why don't you try tea leaf salad or shan-style rice (fish rice)? Both dishes are popular in this area. To finish your meal, try halawa (sticky rice, butter and coconut). Visitors who don't consume alcoholic drinks will want to sample black tea, a common drink in this region.
The nearest major airport, Diqing Airport, is situated in Gyalthang, 140 miles (225 kilometers) to the east of Putao, which is handy to remember when planning your vacation.
